ABOUT THE PROJECT
“No matter what he or she does, or how long or short they live,
everyone on this planet plays a central role in forming the history of the world”
Indian Memory Project is an online, curated, visual and narrative based archive that traces a history of the Indian Subcontinent, via photographs and letters found in personal archives. Contextualised with narratives, the photographs & letters (contributed by people all over the world) reveal a powerful and historical palimpsest of a largely undocumented society and sub-continent.
With personal images serving as evidence, each post on the archive reveals valuable information about people, families & ancestors, cultures, lifestyles, traditions, choices, circumstances and thereby consequences. Indian Memory Project is a personal memory of the world – a sociological and photographic history, remembered, realised and experienced by its own people.
Indian Memory Project was founded in February 2010, by Anusha Yadav.
– The project only accepts Photographs and Letters from before the Year 1991. (pre-digital era)
- All images and narratives are curated, edited, corrected and if required rewritten.
